6:01 pm
speak. earlier today tim kaine was out and about doing a little politicking in favor and in honor and in pursuit of his senate seat that he'd like to get from george allen. tom sherwood is here now with more on that story. tom? >> jim, everybody knows tim kaine is in a tough race. he knows it. he's trying to rally the troops. >> former governor and future united states senator, tim kaine! >> reporter: former virginia governor tim kaine welcomed by the party faithful in charlotte tuesday telling a boisterous crowd he and his republican senate opponent george allen had been tied in the polls for yearly a year. closer than the presidential race. >> isn't it great to be a battleground state? virginia really matters, folks. we really matter. we're going to see a lot of focus and a lot of spotlight. that's exciting. but it also means we've got to do our best work. >> reporter: allen, also a former governor who lost his senate seat six years ago,
6:02 pm
campaigned in fairfax county tuesday. allen skipped the republican convention in tampa to focus on his virginia race. and kaine is spending only this one day in charlotte. he addresses the convention tonight. what's your message tonight? >> i'm going to talk heavily about results. i really do think -- look, i'm a -- i'm a virginia centered guy. i really think the virginia model of focus on the results, let the other guys be the ideology and wedge issue party. >> reporter: you're going to stay within your time? >> i'm sure my staff will make sure i stay within my time, yes. >> reporter: what does he think might turn the senate campaign with just two months to go? i think debates will be important, certainly the presidential race will be important. but, you know, we have a moderate number of undecideds. >> reporter: northern virginia congressman jerry connolly agrees. >> democrats and republicans are almost evenly divided in virginia. we're fighting over a very small slice of the undecided as governor kaine indicated.
6:03 pm
>> reporter: those allen/kaine debates this fall ought to be pretty good. tim kaine should be taking the podium here a short time later for his speech here. then back to virginia to keep campaigning. >> seems like the virginia delegation, the seats are quite full down there. earlier today they were singing and chanting and just having themselves a good time. like they're really happy to be here. >> when you get in here early, you've got to find something to do. >> they found it. they did it well. we're going to come back a little bit later in this broadcast. we'll have a report on some of the obstacles facing the efforts to get the black vote energized down here in this part of north carolina. back to you guys. >> sounds like they've got something to do now. it's noisy there. >> yeah. they're rolling. >> see you in a little bit. thank you, jim and tom. they talk about the bounce after a convention? well, the gop convention doesn't appear to have given mitt romney a boost. the new gallup show shows his support is virtually unchanged. romney's take a break from the campaign trail today. his running mate paul ryan's in
6:04 pm
the first leg of a week long fundraising trip speaking to supporters near cleveland today. ryan attacked president obama's health care program and the economy. >> the biggest threat to medicare is obama care. and one of the biggest threats to job creation is obama care. so for the sake of medicare and for the sake of jobs, we are going to repeal and replace obama care! >> romney's campaign raised more than $100 million in august. it was the third consecutive month the republican candidate reached the mark. for some of us, it's going to be a rainy night ahead. storm team 4 meetologist doug kammerer joins us now with the very latest. >> you can see out there right now we're looking at temperatures around 84 degrees. that heat index, though, around 90. very warm and very humid conditions. that's exactly what we're going to be seeing through the rest of the night. look at the winds. out of the south at about 15 mimes per hour right now. here's the current radar. notice not a whole lot going on. we just have a few isolated showers around. most of these are not on the heavy side. so that is some good news.
6:05 pm
i think for the evening, the rest of the evening we're looking good. for the nats game no problems there. maybe a quick shower. that's about it. as we widen out notice this rain down here towards the roanoke area. this st a little wave here that's going to ride up i-81 and towards our area throughout the rest of the evening hours and into the overnight. could be talking about heavy rain overnight. a better chance for heavy rain during the day tomorrow. we'll talk about that, how much rain we may see and then what comes next. because first it's the rain. then something else entirely. we'll talk about it in just a minute. >> uh-oh. okay, doug. residents of several dc neighborhoods are still cleaning up from sunday night's heavy rainstorm. a lot of water enlded up in their basements. it's an ongoing problem. the city is looking at solutions. jackie bensen is joining us live from rhode island and first street northwest in the hard-hit bloomingdale neighborhood. jackie? >> reporter: jim, people here are frustrated.
6:06 pm
the problem? there's no place for the water to go. 300 gallons of water is gushing out of this plastic container. but there's not even a puddle in this bladensburg alley. pave drain is a road service that allows water to drain back into the ground rather than pushing it into overloaded storm drains. >> this surface allows water to go into its base and back to mother nature. >> reporter: to avoid the type of urban flash flooding that occurred sunday night, some knew nis palties require so-called permeable paving to be used in alleys and parking lots of new construction. the district does not. but a panel of engineers examining all possible remedies for the bloomingdale flooding situation will give it consideration. >> what this will do is stop the water, the sewage and water coming in from the main sewer line. >> reporter: master plumber jeffrey levin demonstrates the device that could have prevented messes like this one sunday night. >> water was -- was pouring out of both the toilets.
6:07 pm
>> reporter: residents of several neighborhoods in lower northwest watched in horror as their bathroom fixtures spewed geysers of dirty water. the pressure from thousands of gallons of storm water runoff forced it up through shower and toilet drains. dc water is urging affected residents to install a backflow preventer. >> allow the water to go through as it opens. and will prevent the water from coming back because the flap will stay closed. >> reporter: the utility will rebate most of the installation cost up to $3,000. an informational meeting will be held for the public on thursday night at 7:00 at dc water's bryant street pumping station, 301 bryant street northwest. one concern likely to be disc s discussed is that many older residents cannot afford that initial outlay which could be thousands of dollars, even though they're going to get a rebate from the city. reporting live in the bloomingdale neighborhood, jackie bensen, news 4. >> our preliminary estimate is
6:08 pm
out tonight about just how much damage hurricane isaac really caused. louisiana officials say the storm damaged at least 13,000 homes across that state. isaac came ashore last tuesday as a category 1 storm. it was slow moving. it dumped more than two feet of rain on some parts of the gulf coast. some residents are still without power and some neighborhoods are still flooded with several feet of water. a maryland man accused in a weekend stabbing is being held on half a million dollars bail tonight. the 20-year-old defendant tells police he thought he had hired a female prostitute. and was embarrassed when he discovered his mistake. chris gordon is in our newsroom with details. >> the attacker returned to the scene of the crime to say he's sorry. the 41-year-old victim was hospitalized with serious stab wounds. the montgomery county police department says this story should come as a warning to us all. >> whoever you are, if you're going to have relations with a stranger, you're putting yourself at risk.
6:09 pm
that is risky behavior. >> it started here at the cocoa cabana grill. police say the victim was dressed as a woman standing outside. the defendant, 20-year-old christian ariel romero allegedly offered money for sex. police say romero drove to the victim's neighborhood in silver spring. when romero discovered his companion was a man posing as a woman, he allegedly stabbed the victim repeatedly. >> the suspect did return to the scene where it occurred. and was remorseful. and admitted his involvement to the police. >> reporter: the defense lawyer representing christian romero says he has no criminal record prior to this incident. a dozen family members came to court in support of christian romero. the judge set bail at $500,000. romero's lawyer calls the high bail harsh. >> i'm shocked. the defendant is a person who's 20 years old, never done anything wrong in his entire life. and the person who's on the
6:10 pm
other side is what it appears to be is a prostitute. 40 years of age with a track record, a history. and basically he thought that he was having -- not expecting what he got. >> reporter: montgomery county states attorney john mccarthy says the bail was set high because of the serious charges against romero. attempted first degree murder. attempted second degree murder. assault in the first and second degree. reckless endangment and theft of the victim's cell phone. mccarthy says the victim's action, posing as a woman, doesn't change that. >> the allegation is a violent attack with a knife. and so misrepresentation of any type does not justify that level of violence. >> christian romero's family cannot afford the half million dollars that it would take to get him released from jail. so he will remain in custody. from the newsroom, chris gordon, news 4. coming up on news 4 at 6:00, after weeks of anticipation and

6:18 pm
north. we had plenty of cloud cover. we had all the moisture that was there. we just didn't have that trigger to really kick things off. tomorrow, i think that trigger moves into the area as a cold front will sweep on in. high temperature today got up to 89 degrees across the area. with the humidity, heat index felt like 95, 96 degrees earlier today. very harm and humid afternoon. and the rain and the heat, they will both return, i think. the rain first overnight tonight into the day tomorrow. the heat over the next couple of days. take a look at the numbers right now. 84 right now with a dewpoint of 73. that humidity way up there near 70%. winds now out of the south at 15 miles per hour. winds have been a little breezy today at the airport out of the south at 15 to 20 miles per hour. 83 in martensburg. 88 in frederick. 83 in baltimore. 82 towards la plata. a very warm atmosphere. take a look at the heat intex.
6:19 pm
even at this hour even though we're not dealing with a whole lot of sunshine, 90 in dc. 96 toward frederick, soupy atmo. a tu stofew storms trying to ma their way toward the metro area down to the south and west. those should die out over the next couple of hours. what may not die out, though, are these showers down here toward the south. some very heavy rain down around roanoke right now. this is a boundary that looks like it's going to stay together and move right up the eastern portions of the blue ridge. we could see some fairly heavy rain overnight tonight. if you're thinking about going to the nationals game tonight, i think you're fine. will there be a brief shower? it's possible. but i think they're going to get the game in without any real problems. tomorrow we'll be watching out for the this back here. notice this line of showers and thunderstorms. this is actually a frontal boundary. this frontal boundary will help to sweep on through the area. that's what's going to help to give us that trigger during the day tomorrow to send those storms high up into the
6:20 pm
atmosphere and give us that potential for some rain. again, the potential is there for some rather heavy rain, maybe flooding rains. i don't think they'll be sticking over the same areas. they'll have a little movement to them. that's good news. by thursday the frontal boundary moves down to the south. so will rain chances. best chances of rain southern maryland maybe around fredericksburg and down towards the richmond area, maybe over towards norfolk. that's really about it. rather warm conditions in here during the day on thursday. and then into the day friday, too, as temperatures get back into the low 90s. this evening, mostly cloudy. isolated showers. rather warm and humid. temperatures 81 to about 85 degrees. winds out of the south at about 10 to 20 miles per hour. tomorrow morn wk partly cloudy, few showers, warm and muggy when you wake up. 70 to 74 degrees. if we see any showers, once again, they could be fairly heavy. you want to make sure you have that big umbrella potentially if we do see some of those. as we make our way through the day tomorrow i think a better chance of some heavier rain trying to move into the region. we'll see a high temperature
6:21 pm
between 84 and 89 degrees. another very warm and humid day. best chance of rain tomorrow, between, say, 10:00 and 3:00 in the afternoon. it could affect your lunch hour if you're thinking about maybe taking a lunch outdoors. you may want to think again. 92 on your thursday. 93 on friday. rather hot. heat index above 95. 88 on saturday with a chance of storms there. better chance of rain i think on sunday as a pretty strong front moves in. that front will really help to lower temperatures. 82 on sunday. 78 on monday. 79 on tuesday. so some fall-like weather coming in. that trough that's going to bring in that cooler weather also moving leslie well out to sea. if it wasn't for that trough, leslie may come our way. >> stay where you are, leslie. coming up, we'll head back down live to charlotte, north carolina. jim vance joins us live from the

moment. the state of the economy is sure to be one of the top issues the party addresses this week. >> the economy may also be among the reasons democrats can't take black voters for granted this year. jim vance live in charlotte with more on that tonight. jim? >> hi, jim and doreen. there were three critical elements to the president's victory in '08. the youth vote, the women vote and the black vote. he'll need all three again this time to stay in office. but there are challenges to all three. the black vote included. four years ago president obama won north carolina handily. it's going to be a tougher battle this time around, though. in '08 the black turnout in north carolina was significant. >> they were close to -- to 60%. but you had some actually even
6:30 pm
in meklynnburg county here, here in charlotte, you had some precincts that were african-american that still showed at 42%, 49%. >> reporter: dr. patrick graham is president of the local urban league. he adds black voter participation especially now has suffered. because a lot of people are on really hard times. >> when you talk about issues of economics and poverty, unemployment, your priority shifts to those things that are much more important on a daily basis. so to look at voting, something that is still futuristic, something that is -- is -- has payoffs down the line, it doesn't become as much of a priority. we have to really energize them around that. >> reporter: because of that, the urban league and others are trying to educate and motivate. >> i would launch an aggressive occupy the vote campaign over the next two months. and what that does is, it allows us to take our partner agencies, about 15 of us, to do what we call an adopt a zone strategy
6:31 pm
where we adopt precincts and actually attack them that way. >> reporter: dr. graham adds that despite the current economic pinch, which for some people is more like a paralyzing cramp, he says black voters as a whole are the most optimistic in the country. doreen and jim, we'll have more from the convention coming up tonight at 11:00. >> michelle obama is the big attraction this evening, right? >> reporter: yeah, she is. as a matter of fact, she tdid a little walk-through yesterday up on the stage. there were, i guess, i don't know, 3,000, 4,000 people in here. they erupted as though, i don't know, maybe lady gaga was on stage. she's -- mrs. obama is a rock star down here. >> but she's a much more tasteful dresser. >> i was going to say. better dresser than lady gaga. >> i couldn't agree more. >> see you at 11:00. our coverage of the dnc continues here on nbc 4. brian williams anchors "nbc nightly news" from the

6:33 pm
